SDC’s International Design Competition was set up in 2002. Over the last 16 years we have engaged with thousands of students around the world and are still in touch with many of them today. Each year the winner of the competition is awarded the prestigious Veronica Bell trophy. Veronica was a past President of the SDC and she was heavily involved in designing for the international fashion industry. She kindly bequeathed a sum of money to the SDC. The image shows the winner of the 2017 competition – Rosie Moorman – holding the Veronica Bell trophy, with the runners up (Mikayla Hammond and Li Shan).
We asked Marion Whitelaw, a regular judge at the Scottish heat of the competition, to tell us about her experience of working with Veronica.
